Something very different for London's ExCel centre

London's ExCel centre has been home to the London Bike show for quite a few years. It is also the place where you collect your rider pack for the Ride100 and Ride46. It has now been transformed into the capital's emergency coronavirus hospital.

The temporary hospital has been named Nightingale - wish they had of named it Seacole after the great Mary Seacole - and it will hold up to 4000 patients after been set up with the help of the army.

The London Bike Show which would have taken place over the weekend has now been postponed until 3 -5 July 2020. I think that even though it has been pushed forward a few months, it is a little ambitious. I hope I am proved wrong.

Apart from collecting my Ride46 rider pack (link to my blog post below) a more lasting memory was when the London Nocturne took place inside the ExCel centre as part of the London Bike Show way back in 2013! I have posted a link to why blog post for that as well. That really is memory lane for me!

Keep safe people and look after yourselves!!
